For John -- I'll Stand By You

This song is dedicated to my husband, John Knox, a two time cancer survivor. It's I'll Stand By You by Carrie Underwood. A few weeks ago, John had another cancer scare. We were sure this time his cancer was back. The numbers and symptoms indicated it. I'll tell you more about it later, but I just wanted you to know that as of now, it appears he's still cancer-free. We were stunned when we heard the cancer was most likely back, and just as stunned to learn a few weeks later that it wasn't. But let me digress for a moment. During the weeks when we weren't sure if the cancer was back, or rather, were almost positive it was back, I would sing this song, I'll Stand By You, to John. Now it's "our song." Listen to the words, it's beautiful...


  1. I don't know what to say... so many emotions go thru me as I consider my words. John is so fortunate to have someone who feels this way about him. It also says a lot about you and there has to be a special place in heaven for you!!

  2. I am so glad that it isn't back. I will keep you both in my prayers.

  3. I hope you realise that all your friends are singing this with you Krissy.
    I'm so very happy for you both that it hasn't come back again.
    God bless you both.
    Much love

  7. Krissy,

    Such meaningful lyrics! In fact, this song brought back so many memories of my mom's battle with Alzheimer's that it made me cry.

    SO glad to hear that John's cancer isn't back and praying that all will continue to go well for him and you. John is so blessed to have you in his corner.



I would love to hear from you. Now is your chance! So what do you want to say?
